According to The Hill, the Democrats won’t do revisions to their memo, crafted as a rebuttal to the GOP FISA memo.
According to The Hill: Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday night that members of his party won’t revise their countermemo, despite requests from the White House to do so.
“We’re not going to make any revisions to it. The only question is what redactions will be made. And obviously we’d like to keep those to a minimum,” Schiff told reporters.
“The White House has a different interest. I think their interest is in redacting anything that doesn’t reflect well on the White House,” Schiff added.
President Trump last week blocked the release of the Democratic rebuttal to a GOP-crafted memo accusing the Justice Department and FBI of abusing a surveillance program.
The White House said the Democratic memo would create “especially significant concerns” for “national security and law enforcement interests,” adding that it would work with the Intelligence Committee if it wanted to revise and resubmit the document.
